This is a bug with NetView 5.1 security.  Look in /usr/OV/PD/cores/nvsecd/
for a core file.  I have a case open with IBM and have sent them a core
file, but have yet to hear back.  They did seem to be aware of the problem
when I opened the ticket though.

An ovstart will restart nvsecd, and does not seem to affect the security of
other EUIS.  Maybe it would be wise to put in a cron job to run ovstart
periodically to prevent users from seeing the problem....
